Police: Man possibly linked to 19 W. Pa. break-ins

JENNERSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — State police have released surveillance photos of a man who may be linked to as many as 19 burglaries at banks, restaurants and other southwestern businesses in the last two months.

Troopers from the Somerset barracks aren’t sure the man is responsible for all the burglaries, but believe he could be. Many are in the Jennerstown area, along U.S. Route 30, about 50 miles east of Pittsburgh.

They include automatic teller machines at banks, restaurants, smaller markets and some larger businesses, including a coal mining firm, a construction company, an automotive shop and an iron and steel company.

The grainy images show the man wearing a bandanna and police acknowledge the man may be difficult to recognize, but say his right foot turns in and he walks with a pronounced limp.
